Khan: Roach Making Himself Look Stupid With Gym Tales

By Rick Reeno

Amir Khan (29-3, 19KOs) is still in disbelief that his former trainer, Freddie Roach, stated in several interviews that Manny Pacquiao dropped the British boxer during their sparring sessions. Roach trained both fighters for several years at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood and there were several joint training camps.

Khan denies that Pacquiao dropped him or even came close to scoring a knockdown. In fact, Khan says he's never been dropped by anybody during a sparring session.

"That never happened. Manny never dropped me in sparring or got close to [dropping me]. At times we used to hurt each other in sparring because I was a two-time world champion at the time and Manny was one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world, and we used to have very competitive sparring. I cannot believe that Freddie Roach went and said that he knocked me down, because really he's making himself look stupid."

"All of the people who used to be in the gym, we used to have the gym open to everybody - and nobody saw that, so when the hell did he knock me down? He never knocked me down or knocked me out. To be honest with you, I've never been dropped in sparring."
